IT'S IN THE JEANS

My fixation with jeans go back a long way, when a pair of Ronald Sassoon's  were the "it" jeans. The 80's dictated tight fitting jeans tapered down to the ankle, and needed a fair amount of energy to be applied to get in and out of them. I suppose the skinny trend merely represents a revival of the "hold your breath" era in a slightly different shape. However, pear shapes must steer clear of skinnies as it makes you look like a butternut pumpkin. I opt for the skinny bootleg, which fits tight around the thighs but is cut straight down to the bottom instead of those cut on  a curve around the hips.  I might still have to hold my breath getting into them but perhaps that's due to my recent submission to Lindt chocolate.
 
Come on girls, show us how to squeeze into them jeans, without suffocating or sustaining a hernia...
